Q. I keep getting Newszone.pro pop-ups. I really don’t wish to have these popping up all while I am trying to use my machine. Has someone hints for the problem that I described?
A. Did it occur after installing any new software? What were you doing before these popups first occurred? Sounds like you’ve possibly encountered an adware issue. The fix for that problem is ‘reset web browser settings’ and use adware removal utilities.
The Dangers of Adware. Adware is a term that originates from ‘ad supported’ software. In most cases, ‘adware’ is considered by many to be synonymous with ‘malware’. Its purpose is to generate revenue for its owner by serving unwanted ads to a user while the user is surfing the Internet.
Another reason why you need to get rid of adware is its online data-tracking activity. Adware software can collect your Internet browsing activity by saving URLs visited, IP addresses, web browser version and type, cookie information, Internet Service Provider (ISP) and web-sites visited. Such kind of behavior can lead to serious security problems or confidential information theft. This is another reason why the adware which causes unwanted Newszone.pro pop-up ads should be uninstalled as soon as possible.
Newszone.pro is designed to deceive you and other unsuspecting users to accept browser notification spam via the web browser. It will display a ‘Click Allow to continue’ message, asking you to subscribe to notifications. If you click the ‘Allow’ button, then your web-browser will be configured to show popup ads in the right bottom corner of the screen. The authors of Newszone.pro use these push notifications to bypass protection against popups in the browser and therefore display a lot of unwanted ads. These ads are used to promote dubious browser extensions, giveaway scams, adware bundles, and adult web pages.
In order to unsubscribe from Newszone.pro browser notification spam open your web-browser’s settings, search for Notifications, locate Newszone.pro and press the ‘Block’ (‘Remove’) button or complete the Newszone.pro removal instructions below. Once you remove Newszone.pro subscription, the push notifications will no longer show on the screen.
